Today we are answering the following question from a listener:

“I recently read an article in a major newspaper stating that eating late at night has again been found to be bad for you. According to the article, it can raise risk of cardiovascular disease, weight gain, and deteriorate sleep quality. Personally, I find it very hard to avoid eating at night. If I don’t, I tend to feel hungry when going to bed or I wake up too early because I’m hungry.Sometimes this happens even if I eat rather close to bedtime. I wonder if this might be from some metabolic problem like issues with insulin, leptin, melatonin, or something else. What foods would you recommend to avoid waking up hungry? What’s your take on whether it is actually bad to eat late at night? I found contradicting information when trying to research the topic.”

We keep hearing the warnings to curb late night snacking,

Today we are answering the following question from a listener:

“Hello! I was wondering what’s your take on food additives? Which ones do you think one should try to avoid and which ones are okay? I started thinking about this recently when I bought some almond and coconut milk, as I finally found some that seemed to have pretty good ingredients, no sweeteners or vegetable oils etc. They do have some guar gum, gellan gum, and sunflower lecithin as well as calcium phosphate and potassium phosphate. What do you think of these? Can some minerals or vitamin formulations be potentially harmful? If you have time, I would love it if you could also talk about which additives have special contraindications for gut health or that can be problematic for people with IBD. And thanks for your great show!”

Have you read the ingredient labels on packaged foods lately? When transitioning to a whole foods diet,

Today we are answering the following question from a listener:

“Another carb question (shocker!) but basically the opposite of everyone else’s! What does it mean if increasing whole food carbs mostly from potatoes and sweet potatoes made my fatigue worse instead of better?

Background: I’m a 36 old female with low progesterone, adrenal dysfunction, and hypothyroid, which I’m on Armour for. I’m 5’ 7” eating about 1,800 calories a day. I do light exercise three times a week, mostly 15 to 20 minutes of body weight exercises getting my heart rate up a little bit, but not too much, and I walk the dog every day for 30 to 45 minutes.

I went from a carb/fat/protein macro ratio of about 28/40/32 to 40/25/35 to see if I could increase energy and felt awesome for about 48 hours and then crashed hard, like can’t get out of bed hard.
